Title: Female migrant workers in Greece
Subject: The most recent migrations have originated new forms of racism, essentially connected to the fact that in the labour market immigrants are legally differentiated, socially discriminated and economically exploited by means of an illegitimate statute, which facilitates segregation in the labour market. The comment highlights the fact that the fundamental characteristic of these new forms of migration is the feminine component, which implies that in Greece most immigrants are women from Moldova, Ukraine or Philippines.
